The All India Football Federation today invited a tender notice inviting Bids for new Clubs to be a part of the I-League. The winning bidders will be granted the right to own and operate a new club which will compete in I-League in each year from 2013 onwards and have the opportunity (if applicable and subject to qualification) to compete in the AFC Club Competitions.

The invitation to tender will be available on Working Days between 10am and 5pm at AIFF Headquarters, Football House. All bidding parties need to fulfill the eligibility criteria (Club Licensing) and other requirements specified.

The last date for submission is May 2, 2013 (before 5pm IST). The bids would then be evaluated by a Technical Evaluation Committee following which the results would be announced within a week from the last date of submission.

"It is AIFF's endeavour to make the I-League strong and robust and for that it is imperative that clubs comply with the Licensing criteria specially with regard to infrastructure and Youth Development," AIFF General secretary Kushal Das stated.

"This is in line with what was shared with prospective bidders in the two Open-House meetings which were held in Delhi and Dubai. We are confident of getting a very good response for the above," I-League CEO Sunando Dhar maintained.
